The Spurs don’t play that

Spurs 91 Hornets 82 – For the first time in the series, the Spurs did not blow a third quarter lead on the road. Instead they waited until the fourth quarter. ALMOST! Down 17, Janerro Pargo scored 16 points in the fourth to lead a feisty comeback, but missed a open 3-pointer with under two minutes left that would have tied the game. From there, Tony Parker hit a big jumper and Manu Ginobili (26 pts) made four consecutive free throws to seal the series. This win wasn’t sexy like the Celtics on Sunday, but when have you known the Spurs to bring that kind of game to the table. Tim Duncan missed his last ten shots and San Antonio shot 39.5%, yet did everything on the defensive side to make sure that was enough. New Orleans has a bright future with CP3, David West, and Tyson Chandler returning; but it is still the Spurs that currently reign supreme in the NBA. The Lakers will try to change that starting Wednesday at the Staples Center.
